Meet the Team -
Manis founded Pangaia Pantree in 2005 and was a pioneer in the industry. He introduced many of the big names in the raw food world today to the movement and helped them get their businesses off the ground. Manis acquired a piece of paradise on the Big Island in 1992 which he with he made into a permaculture oasis dreamland. For 20 years Manis, along with the local community and work-traders from around the world, planted over 50 varieties of fruit trees and put their love into creating a community that was next to none. In order to support the rising cost of keeping up the land Manis developed relationships with the early leaders in raw vegan health food industry and began distributing their uniquely sourced superfood products and that's how Pangaia Pantree was born. Manis's passion was planting, farming, overseeing the work-traders and creating a business that could support his community. The hundreds of fruit trees still feed people today, and it continues to be one of the most abundant properties in Hawaii. The land has since been taken over by new stewards who are enjoying the fruits of labor, love and sweat that so many were a part of. The new community, called "Kanekiki", is preserving the legacy of this sacred land as they continue to plant and share the abundance of luscious organic fruits with the world. Manis moved to another island, and Reka & Zsolt relocated the Pantree to Kauai and the business continues to flourish.
